Phosphatidate phosphohydrolase and palmitoyl coenzyme A hydrolase in cardiac subcellular fractions

Recent Advances in Studies on Cardiac Structure and Metabolism
K J KakoS D Patterson


The characteristics of the two enzymes related to fatty acid esterifaction were studied in order to provide fundamental information leading to further understanding of the control of myocardial glyceride formation. Palmitoyl-CoA hydrolase and phosphatidate phosphohydrolase are both distributed unevenly among heart subcellular fractions. The activity of the latter enzyme in subcellular fractions changes independently in response to Mg2+ addition and in response to thyroid hormone treatment of animals.

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
